Strawberry Cookies

Soft & chewy Strawberry Cookies are filled with jello, pudding, and white chocolate chips, making them irresistible!

These Strawberry Cookies are made using jello and instant pudding mix, similar to our Oreo Pudding Cookies, creating a perfectly chewy cookie! Try Strawberry Shortcake Poke Cake or Strawberry Cream Cheese Bars for more strawberry goodness!

Made with Jell-O Mix!

I LOVE finding new and yummy cookie recipes to try out! We are big fans of cookies in this house.

I recently found a recipe for Cherry White Chocolate Pudding Cookies and decided to change it up just a bit and made a Strawberry Cookies version.

Let me tell ya – pure heaven! The Jell-O and pudding mix in the recipe are the perfect additions and makes the cookies so addicting and chewy! 

The white chocolate chips add flavor that isn’t too overpowering – a perfect compliment.

Because of the sweet pink coloring, these Strawberry Cookies would be perfect for Valentine’s day or maybe a baby shower! And they are SO delicious.

How to Make Strawberry Cookies

PREP. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray or line it with a silicon mat or parchment paper.

WET INGREDIENTS. In a large bowl, cream butter, sugar, and jello powder together. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well.

DRY INGREDIENTS. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, pudding mix, baking soda, and salt. Slowly add to the butter mixture. Mix well. Fold in white chocolate chips.

BAKE. Spoon onto a greased baking sheet. Bake for 9-11 minutes.


Strawberry Jello Cookies are perfect the way they are, but here are a few suggestions to change them up!

Pudding. Use vanilla or instant cream cheese pudding instead of white chocolate instant pudding. The only difference would be the flavor of the cookies. Be sure it is INSTANT pudding and use only the dry powder in the cookies. Do not make it into pudding.

Jello. Change the flavor by substituting the strawberry Jello powder with another flavor such as raspberry or cherry. Do not make the jello, just use the jello powder. I used the JELL-O brand and not a generic version.

Frosting. I would suggest our Strawberry Frosting. Some other options include Berry Buttercream, Cream Cheese, Vanilla, or even Marshmallow frosting. Top the frosting with sliced fresh strawberries to add more strawberry flavor.

Recipe Tips

Room temperature ingredients. Room-temperature eggs and butter will incorporate better with the other ingredients. 

Set them on the counter about 30 minutes before starting the recipe. Or use this: Soften Butter Quickly.

Cooling. Allow the cookies to rest on the baking pan for 5-7 minutes after cooking. This will allow them to finish cooking, then transfer them to a cooling rack to cool completely. 

Picture perfect cookies. Place a few white chips on the top of the cookies when they’re just out of the oven. Use a cookie scoop to ensure that every cookie is the same size.

Storing Info

STORE. Cool Strawberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies and store them in an airtight container (adding a piece of bread will help keep them soft). Cookies will last for about a week.

Cookie dough can be covered and stored in the refrigerator for 1-2 days before baking.

FREEZE the dough. Roll it into a log and freeze altogether, or roll it into individual balls to freeze and easily bake later. 

  • Log: once you have the dough rolled into a log shape, wrap it with plastic wrap and again with foil. Label and freeze for 1-2 months. 
  • Dough balls: form the cookie dough into balls, place them all on a baking sheet, and put the sheet into the freezer. Once the dough balls are frozen, transfer them to a freezer-safe airtight container. Freeze for 1-2 months.

  1. I use Tbsp for tablespoon and tsp. for teaspoon…..each to his own I guess :)I I hope you can read what I wrote…it’s comes up as real ight , and the letters are hard to read… And the dates on the msgs. are like smudged…. Is something wrong ?



  2. I’m going to have to see if I can make this sugar free, it sounds prefect for the summer and I can get most of the ingredients sugar free.

    1. I was going to ask the same thing about the Jello. These look great. Plan to make them soon. Thanx for posting!!

  3. What is the yield on these cookies…how many dozen does it make? They look delicious and I am about to make a batch…using vanilla chocolate chip pudding. Chocolate chips can’t ever be bad in anything, right? Thanks a ton!

  4. These cookies are so good! We made them last night. Makes approx. 40 cookies. Simply delicious! Thank you!

    1. No, it’s just the mix… so you use 2 TB DRY Jello Mix (from the box) and later you use DRY Pudding mix (in the box) to add to the recipe. 🙂

  5. Love, Love, Love these cookies!! I just finished baking these for my daughter. It is her Birthday and she is taking them to preschool.

  6. I personally believe this amazing blog post , “Strawberries
    N Cream Pudding Cookies”, quite entertaining

    Many thanks -Nickolas

  9. I actually blog also and I’m creating a little
    something very close to this blog, “Strawberries N Cream Pudding Cookies”.
    Do you really mind in the event I actuallymake use
    of a lot of of your suggestions? Thanks ,Delores

  10. “Strawberries N Cream Pudding Cookies”
    seriously got me personally addicted with ur blog!

    Idefinitely will wind up being back considerably more normally.
    Thanks a lot ,Marcia

  11. I visited several websites however the audio feature for audio songs present at this site is in fact superb.

    1. I absolutely love your blog and find a lot of your post’s to be just what I’m looking for.
      Do you offer guest writers to write content for you personally?
      I wouldn’t mind creating a post or elaborating on some of the subjects you write with regards to here. Again, awesome website!

  12. I can’t seem to find white chocolate pudding mix…. would vanilla work, just as well? Also, is it the 5oz package, or the smaller one? Thanks!

  13. Making these again for my youngest daughters birthday for preschool tomorrow. They were such a hit at the preschool they ask for more! All four of my kids loved them and my whole neighborhood! I found my hubby in the bathroom eating the last cookie, guess he didn’t want to share! LOL!

    1. LOL!!! Literally!! So glad you guys liked them – they are definitely one of my new favs! Thanks for the sweet words and for making my day.:) XO

  14. These cookies were very good but the strawberry taste was almost undetectable. They just tasted super sweet.

  15. Is it really 1 cup of butter (4 sticks).??? I followed the recipe exactly and they didn’t come out like your picture. They are flat and crumbly 🙁

  16. I made the strawberrry and cream cookies this morning

    they didn’t come out pink though – I used a little over 2 Tablespoons of strawberry jello mix…..

  17. Thank you for posting this. My mother in law just had surgery for colon cancer and she is craving strawberries (because she can’t have them).
    This should do the trick!

  18. I used orange jello, vanilla pudding and they turned out good. I’m going to try those changes plus orange zest and orange juice instead of vanilla extract next time…they become orange creamsicle 🙂

  19. So what size of jello and pudding packaging? Because they have big box and a little box? And no milk? Wouldn’t they come out kind of hard? The intructions are kind of vague along with the measurements.

  20. I just made very similar strawberry cookies and they were super delicious! Mine were pretty basic, though – with just strawberry cake mix….I’ll have to try this out and make it even more unique and yummy!

  21. I seen in step 1 that it says to cream butter with the other ingredients but it isn’t in the list. Do I use butter in the mix? I am making these for my daughter and her friends today for their play date!

  22. I have the same questions as a couple of others that I do not see a response for about the pudding. Should you use instant or cook and serve? Large or small box, there are two sizes. I am going to try it with a small box of instant so I hope it works!

  23. Made this for my community group a few weeks back, they loved it. This will be part of the dessert spread for baby sister’s graduation party.

  24. I’m totally in love with these already because they’re pink 🙂 I had a package of pudding that said it was 1 lb. So I just poured it all in :p the dough tasted good 🙂 lets see how the cookies turn out.

  25. I’m using cheesecake pudding mix for strawberry cheesecake cookies. Awesome recipe!!!!

  26. My girls are planning a rainbow themed sleepover in a few weeks. With so many Jello flavors and colors out there, this is gonna be great!!! THANKS for this recipe!

  27. I tried these once with strawberry (delicious) and this time i used orange jello to switch it up. Needs a little more orange flavor if i do it again though – i saw someone said orange zest and swap out vanilla extract with orange juice… great recipe!

    1. Oooh – orange sounds awesome! I may have to try it!! Thanks for stopping by. SO glad you like the recipe. 🙂

  28. I made these last night and they were delicious! I just kinda skimmed the recipe and ended up using the whole box of strawberry Jello mix instead of just two tablespoons. I didn’t even realize I’d done it wrong until reading some of the other comments! They turned out delicious though! I think they turned out perfect using the whole box . . . and its easier than measuring out part of it, and then finding space to save (and a use for) a half-empty jello mix packet. My whole family has already gobbled most of them up! Thanks for posting such a delicious cookie recipe!

    1. one question though . . . do you have any idea why mine came out more “puffed up” looking than yours? Yours look flat and chewy, while mine were puffy and a light fluffy texture. I’m not complaining at all, I love either kind of cookie! It just wasn’t what I was expecting from the pics. Maybe it was the extra Jello? I also baked them on a cookie sheet lined with oven-safe wax paper instead of baking them directly on the pan . . . maybe that kept them from spreading out very much, so they puffed up instead?

      1. Hi Michaela… not sure why they would puff up. :/ When I make them they always turn out more flat and chewy like the picture. Next time, try putting them directly on the cookie sheet and use all the same measurements. Let me know how they turn out so we can figure out this problem. 🙂

  29. I’m going to try these making strawberry as well as orange flavored ones. I’ll let you know how they turn out! ^_^

      1. They turned out great! I actually liked the orange ones better than the strawberry! Thank you so much for this recipe. They’re delicious!

        1. Good to know… I think I will try Orange next time. We loved the strawberry so I can’t see how we wouldn’t like orange too. 😀

  30. I was wondering if you have tried to freeze these after you baked them? My daughter is being baptized this weekend and I would like to start baking earlier in the week. Thanks for a great recipe!!

    1. Hi Heather! Thank you for stopping by. Unfortunately, I have not tried freezing them. Let me know if you do though so I can make a note of it on the recipe for others to know. I’d imagine it would be fine if you let it out to thaw beforehand. Good luck!

  31. I was wondering… what would happen if I put marshmallows in the middle instead of the white chocolate chips? Like strawberries and cream? Do you think this would work?

    1. I’m trying to find pink baked desserts because my mom is a mammo tech and having a bake sale so these cookies would be perfect. She told me everyone does brownies because they’re easy so I wanted to have something fun and pretty thrown in the mix. Maybe a good white icing, topped with pink sugar and a pink breast cancer awareness ribbon on top?
      And as a side note in reference to the marshmallow question, how awesome would the orange cookies with marshmallows be?!

  32. I was noticing you have 2 teaspoons of vanilla in the instructions and only one teaspoon of vanilla in the ingredients. So is it one or two teaspoons of vanilla?

  33. Hello,
    I really want to try these cookies but want to know if there is an alternative to ready made pudding mix. We don’t get that where I live. Thanks.

  34. I made these and added dried strawberries to the mix as well. Delicious!!! I also have made white chocolate lemon, butterscotch chocolate chip, pistachio with mini marshmallows, Rocky road, lemon berry, black forest (chocolate pudding and maraschino cherries).

  35. So I just tried to make these and thought it meant to make the pudding and the jello.. Lol of course they didn’t turn out right but I am definitely going to try again soon!(:

  36. Made them, and love them!!! But I was wondering what type of flour should I be using? I used all pourpose flour.. But wondering if I should be using cake flour?? And very curious at way my did not turn out pink, pink like the ones in your picture? My was a light pink.. Use I out a drop or two of pink food coloring… Or is it the type of flour that I’m using? Hopefully I can got a response!! Love your blog!

    1. Hi Joy!! I used regular all-purpose flour. Also, I think adding a drop or two of pink food coloring will help. Mine turned out a real pretty pink and didn’t need food coloring, but I don’t think it would hurt to add it. Hope that helps! 😀

  37. Hi!
    I was wondering if I could use vanilla pudding instead of the white chocolate? I couldn’t find the white chocolate one unfortunately.

  38. So different from yours, I had to tweak and bake, tweak and bake! 🙂 we don’t have instant pudding available, so I used the one that has to be cooked. Maybe that’s all the difference in the world! They were cakey and had a chemical aftertaste. Well, we had to eat them anyway! 🙂

    1. Hmmm… I would definitely try the instant pudding next time. There definitely is a difference and we’ve never had troubles with the instant pudding. 🙂

  39. I just made these for my fiance and oh my goodness! So good! I’m not sure what was better, the cookies or the batter. We only had a small box of the white chocolate pudding but they still turned out great. Thank you!

    1. I’m so glad you liked them. They are definitely a fav of ours too!! I think it’s been too long since I’ve made them – guess that means I better make them again this week. 😉

  40. My cookies look absolutely nothing like these. The dough was a peach color then baked to a light brown peachy color. Not happy. I was wanting a pink cookie for Valentine’s Day. Oh well…

  41. Just made your YUMMY cookies. Wanted to make them for a baby shower and they are awesome! Yummy flavor! They did not turn out as pink as yours, but are still a pale baby pink and so pretty with the white chips poking through. Some people were asking how many this recipe makes, I used a 3 inch ice cream scoop, and got exactly three dozen. Just what I needed. Yea!

  42. I forgot to add, I had to cook mine for 15 minutes since the were so big. They are so yummy, I may not have any left for the shower.

    1. LOL!! I’m so glad you liked these!! You can definitely make them a little more pink with food coloring. 😉 I hope you’re able to have some for the shower and that those there will enjoy them. Thanks for stopping by!

  43. hello I was wondering would I be able to use a strawberries cream pudding mix & not use the jello? I didn’t know if they would still come out pink.

  44. 4 stars
    Made them! They turned out very yummy however the pink disappeared in the oven somehow. The dough was super pink because I used the entire packet of jello mix, but when they came out of the oven they were almost white. I did use an off brand of jello though,do you think that was the cause? Anyway, good recipe!

    1. Yay! I’m not sure why they came out, almost white. I haven’t had that happen. Maybe try the Jello brand & see if that helps? Let me know! We love this recipe!!

  45. 5 stars
    Made these for a flamingo themed bachelorette party. They turned out amazing and so pink! Big hit. Thanks for the recipe! Will be making these again soon.

    1. Hmm..I am not sure sure what yours looked like, but I do like to add a few chips on top, before I put them in the oven. That gives them a pretty look. I hope they tasted good!

  46. 5 stars
    My family LOVES these!!!! I have made them 3 times, once even using Raspberry Jell-O in place of the Strawberry. I personally liked the original Strawberry better because it’s sweeter but my hubby likes Raspberry better since it’s not as sweet. They came out perfect everytime and were super soft even after a few days stored in Zip-loc baggies!

  47. hello i m really excite to make this cookies but in mexico ther’s not pudding instant mix. can i change this ingrediente by other one?

    1. Do you have an equivalent to instant pudding? I haven’t tried substituting it before. If you google substitutions for instant pudding in cookies, there are suggestions, so you’d need to just see what you have. Hope that helps!

  48. 5 stars
    These cookies Are deliCious!! I have a friend that loves pumpkin I was wOndering if you had Any suggestions oh how to make these pumpkin flavored since tHey don’t make pumpkin Flavored jello

    1. Glad you like them! I haven’t tried them as a pumpkin flavor, but maybe you can use a couple teaspoons of pumpkin puree, instead of the strawberry jello. Or, use vanilla pudding, but a however much pumpkin spice you’d like. I have seen pumpkin jello, but it might be hard to find at the moment.

  49. 5 stars
    Even better than I thought they would be! I did not get as many as the recipe said…I made them larger and got about 16 cookies. It was hard to tell when they were done, I waited until the bottoms started to brown. They were perfect; soft inside and firm enough on the bottom to support their weight.

  50. Your first image of these cookies grabbed my attention immediately. Perfection!
    I recently had a tour of a strawberry farmers operation: and have a deeper respect for what farmers do for us all. I have loved strawberries my entire life. I knew I had to make these cookies and have printed the recipe. I will make them this weekend and my son is turning 12 and LOVES all things strawberry. They will blow his mind. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us!

  51. 5 stars
    Love this recipe . Used vanilla pudding instead of white chocolate . It’s what I had on hand . I also used raspberry extract instead of vanilla. Did not change any measurements. A banana version with walnuts would also be tasty. A request from my husband ! It made 24 cookies and baked 14 min. Used small ice-cream scoop on metal cookie sheet non stick. Was a breeze with my kitchen aid. Keep the great recipes coming!

    1. Thanks for sharing! I’m all about using what’s on hand. The vanilla pudding and raspberry extract sound like a fun twist. The banana version is a great suggestion too. Glad you enjoyed the cookies!

  52. Not sure how this has has such good reviews. I followed the recipe exactly and the dough was like play-doh and they taste extremely artificial. Disappointed to say the least.

    1. 5 stars
      The first time I made them, I used stick butter that wasn’t quite all the way softened and they did turn out with a play-do like consistency but they were still good! I made sure that the butter was softened all the way through on the rest of the batches I’ve made and now they’re absolutely perfect!

  53. 5 stars
    I absolutely LOVE these cookies!!! I made them for my daughter’s first birthday party and they were a hit! I have another batch in the oven just for us cause they’re so good.

  54. 5 stars
    Made these cause …. Valentine’s Day . But seriously so yummy I’ll prob make them other times throughout the year .( I used vanilla pudding and cut way back on the white chocolate chips) Thank you for a pretty looking and pretty tasting recipe!

  55. 5 stars
    Well at first I couldn’t figure out why my dough was sticky. So I put it in the fridge for a bit to harden. Cookies were flat and kinda greasy after baking.. thennnn I realized I only put 1 and 1/2 cups of flour instead of 2 and 1/2 cups (smh) hahah well I had myself a chuckle and will absolutely need to try this recipe again as the cookies did still taste good lol!
